#Instill Core

🔮 Instill Core is the foundation for self-hosting our open-source unstructured data infrastructure stack. It houses essential services like user management servers, databases, and third-party observability tools. Instill Core also provides deployment codes to facilitate the seamless launch of both Instill VDP and Instill Model.

#Instill VDP

💧 Instill VDP, or VDP (Versatile Data Pipeline), is no-code/low-code pipeline builder that allows you to build, test, release and share AI workflows for unstructured data. It empowers you to rapidly develop versatile AI capabilities with exceptional speed.

If your goal is to develop versatile AI features using Large Language Models (LLM), Generative AI, Vision, or Audio models, Instill VDP empowers you to:

  • Effortlessly connect to your unstructured data
  • Build pipelines to enable diverse AI functionalities in your applications
  • Visually test pipelines with a single click, viewing output at each stage
  • Easily share your pipelines to showcase your work
Build, test and share your pipelines - No code required!
